1) For biggners, the flavor of mescal can be harsh and even cause coughing. Drink Mezcal slowly. Traditionally mescal is drunk is as a shot, with a side plate of fried larvae ground with chili peppers and salt and cut limes. You take a pinch of the larvae mixture and places it on the tongue, then immediately begins to drink the shot, but slowly. Newbies are targeted to drink too much too fast. Please avoid over drinking. Remember, that your friends or relatives will not like you more if you drink more and they will not like you less if you drink less.
